You're right; typing the address as a url works for for for files in ~/Downloads. So it seems to be a problem with the dialoge boxes in Firefox. There is something similar in Chrome; here the file access dialogue does work correctly but trying to import a bookmarks file produces the same dialogue page as with Firefox, i.e. no access to any local directories.
